Dear friends,

For years, I have told you about our campaign to lower the $1,000 fines that our members receive for small infractions. I’m sure you are tired of hearing it.

Well, guess what?

Today, we learned that NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn is supporting our bills! They will receive a vote next Wednesday, at City Hall, and are expected to easily pass. Whether we can over-ride Mayor Bloomberg’s veto remains to be seen. Either way, this is a huge step toward what will be a historic victory for working people.

I wanted to pass along this breaking news right now. Mark your calendars for a victory celebration the evening of Tuesday, April 2nd at our first-ever Great Street Meet event!

More later,
Sean Basinski
